Singapore Sees Covid Crisis Settling Down as Cases Start to Fall

Singapore’s latest Covid-19 wave, driven by omicron variants, appears to be declining after surging in July, with the health minister saying this week that the infection tide is “coming to a peak, and starting to turn”.

Average infections over a seven-day period in the city-state fell to 8,383 as of midday July 26, from a high of 10,198 on July 19, according to data from the health ministry. The country’s week-over-week infection ratio declined to 0.82.
